US Army Lieutenant Ashley White

An insurgent bomb claimed the life of US Army officer, 1st Lieutenant Ashley I. White, from Ohio, along with two other soldiers on 22nd October 2011 in Kandahar province.

1Lt. White, age 24, served with the North Carolina National Guard, assigned to 230th Brigade Support Battalion, 30th Heavy Brigade Combat Team. According to various news sources, she was part of an elite Cultural Support Team of female soldiers working alongside Special Operations forces.

A press release from Army Special Operations Command said 1Lt. White "selflessly served and her actions exemplify the highest commitment to duty, honor and country."

She leaves her husband Captain Jason Stumpf, her parents, Robert and Deborah White, brother Josh and twin sister Brittney.

The other soldiers killed were Sgt. 1st Class Kristoffer Domeij and Pfc.Christopher A. Horns, both serving with the 75th Ranger Regiment.


  1. Jason & the White family;
    There are no words to describe the sorrow, yet I must reach out & tell you how much I loved your wife/daughter/sister. She was a great friend to my daughter & when she visited my home with Jalayna & Lucy I saw first hand what a truly beautiful soul Ashley was.
    I am Jalayna's mother. Through Jalayna & Lucy, Ashley will never be forgotten. Please. If you ever need anything, don't hesitate to ask.
    Please accept my heart felt condolences,
    Kara L Nadal

  2. I only met Ashley once or twice but just from those few brief meetings I could tell she had a kind heart. She treated people equally and talked with me (who was a stranger at the time) as if she were talking with a life-long friend. She was also very humble. My sympathy goes out to her family but especially her twin sister Brittney. I know the two were very close and this will be a very hard time for her sister. I just want Brittney to know that she is my prayers and thoughts.

    To the family of Ashley White,

    I did not know Ashley at all. I happened across this news from a posting on facebook, not the national news, which in itself is sad.

    I am simply one of the citizens in this great nation of ours that wants to extend the most sincere of condolences to your family.

    We owe Ashley and her family a debt of gratitude that can never be paid in full. We thank her for her service and extend the same thanks to her husband.

    My heart is extremely heavy for your loss and may you receive a peace regarding this. Your family will be in our prayers...

    Donald C. Nevels, Jr.

You remain in our prayers. The Bednarz family
